If anyone is with Sky Broadband and your router has upgraded to the 2.04 firmware, which enabled MER connection, try the following in your Billion or other 3rd party router.
For now, I think this will work with MER, as the IP address is dynamic, but the IP address assigned rarely changes, or has a long lease time from Sky for now. So you will need the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway and DNS servers from connecting your Sky router, taking note of them, then re-connecting your Billion.
- Profile Port: ADSL
- Protocol: MPoA (RFC1483, Multiprotocol Encapsulation over AAL5)
- Description: [Anything You Want]
- VPI: 0
- VCI: 40
- Encap. Method: VC/MUX
- NAT: Enabled
- MAC Spoofing: WAN MAC address from Sky router
- IP: As Sky router
- Netmask: As Sky router
- Gateway: As Sky router
- Obtain DNS: As Sky router or Google Primary: 188.8.131.52 Google Secondary: 184.108.40.206
If you want to try Dynamic method, just leave the IP Address set to 0.0.0.0.
If this does not work, you can always still use the PPPoA connection method, until the revoke PPPoA access to the network.
Please let me know if this helps you out.
Also, please note that as per the Sky Broadband Terms and Conditions
Sky Broadband Terms and Conditions - Section 3 Part A wrote:Sky Broadband must only be accessed via your Wireless Router. Your Wireless Router is not supplied as being capable of being used to access any other Internet service.
Therefore accessing the Sky Broadband network by means of any other router other than a non-Sky provided router is a breach of your contract and can be punished by Sky if they feel fit, even though I have never had any problems using non-Sky routers in the past, that does not mean that you will not.
